S/O Did Graco ever recall the bucket seats?

My bucket seat buckle has be awful since we bought it. Did Graco ever recall the bucket seats? I purchased it at Target with my RedCard so they should be able to find it. I would love to switch it out. I filled out the online form for a new buckle many, many, many weeks ago and still haven't received it.

Only convertible and boosters I believe.

ETA: I believe their reason was in case of a crash, the buckets can be easily removed vs. the convertible and boosters which cannot. You don't have to undo the buckles to get the seat out with the buckets.

AFAIK, the above is correct. Buckets haven't been recalled, but you can order the replacement buckle. I ordered mine & am still waiting...at this rate, my girls will outgrow their buckets before I get the buckles.

Seven weeks??? Seems like a really long time for defective car seat straps.
